  1. WEDNESDAY CHECK IN (Week Zero) Goal One: Yellow Exercise 4x per week (bonus point for 5) I did PIIT 2.3 Luscious Legs -- and DAYUMMMM. My butt, my quads, my legs... All in pain. All angry. Feels. So. Good. Goal Two: Red 4,000 steps minimum on work days 4,007. I let myself be a little lazier yesterday because I was feeling super worn out. A friend is coming in town today and I looked at my kitchen and said "eh eff it". It's crazy that I am still barely making it when I am working out daily and walking more. I know on run days 10,000 is easy-peasy. During the week I never imagined 4,000 would be so hard. Goal Three: Blue 60oz of water a day Huzzah to me. I drank enough and DIDN'T HAVE TO PEE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!! Goal Four: Multivitamin Net 1500 calories a day. Way less hungry on day three. Feels like I am adjusting. I was 100 under based on logging, but I had to guess a bit on lunch so I will call it even. I KNOW I won't make it tonight. There will be much drinking.
  2. I have a standing desk that I think my lower back wishes I used more. Maybe something for the next challenge??
  3. I KNOW I need to get up more. And I can set my Fitbit to buzz every hour or so if I haven't moved... But my workerbee brain is like "NO YOU CAN'T YOU HAVE TO WORRRRK!!!" So I at LEAST try to go for a .5 mile walk at lunch each day around the parking lot. But it's hard. I need to make a better point of actually leaving my desk once in awhile.
  4. HI I'm here to follow along and supp- OOH LOOK SHINY!
  5. TUESDAY CHECK IN (Week Zero) Goal One: Yellow Exercise 4x per week (bonus point for 5) I did PIIT 2.2 Total Body Lean... and It didn't feel too hard until I got up this morning and my BUTT IS KILLING ME. And my shoulders still hurt from Monday. Yeesh. Goal Two: Red 4,000 steps minimum on work days 4,071. Dang this is actually really challenging. Like... I THOUGHT I got close to 4,000 a day but if I don't go for a lunch walk AND do some house work at night, it's been really had to get here so far. Goal Three: Blue 60oz of water a day Huzzah to me. I am still waking up at 3:30 am to pee every night. I don't know if it's my anxiety waking me up and then I just sort of find that I have to pee or if it's the extra water. I'm trying to not have anything to drink after 8pm and I still work up. Hm. Goal Four: Multivitamin Net 1500 calories a day. YAS QUEEN. I wake up hungry now, which I don't usually do. But it hasn't been bad. I spaced my dinner and evening snack out a little more and I didn't dream of food like a cartoon cat riding a hamburger...
  6. Hey that was a good share! Thanks!! Sometimes I want to eat the world and sometimes I'm not hungry at all. I like knowing the science behind it.
  7. MONDAY CHECK IN (Week Zero) Goal One: Yellow Exercise 4x per week (bonus point for 5) I did PIIT 2.1 Amazing Arms and I can't tell you how much my arms hurt right now. Double push ups. Half cobra push ups. Planks. Owwww. Goal Two: Red 4,000 steps minimum on work days 4,533 - Went for a lunch walk and cleaned the bathroom when I got home... and I still barely made it. Desk jobs are for the birds. But not literally, because birds can't sit at desks. That would just be silly. Goal Three: Blue 60oz of water a day YAS! But I forgot by bottle at home today so it will be a really conscious effort to keep that up two days in a row. I am not enjoying having to pee at 3:30am every night but... I am enjoying being hydrated. Goal Four: Multivitamin Net 1500 calories a day. Spot on. After my workout, I capped the night off with a raspberry cream protein shake and called it a night. I'm still feeling a bit hungry. I was even dreaming about food and felt my stomach growl - but isn't that fairly normal when you cut the extra out? I mean I'm used to eating 2000-2200 and I ate 1800 but netted 1500 yesterday. So my body getting used to that is probably normal... right?
  8. In that case, I shall enjoy my bider a-thank you.
  9. Question: If one grabs an ale that is a cider that is dry hopped... is it a beer or a cider?... A-these are for moi...
  10. Yeah it was easily one of my favorite games...
  11. I'll try to be more interesting this time! Yay thanks for the support!
  12. SUNDAY CHECK IN (Week Zero) Goal One: Yellow Exercise 4x per week (bonus point for 5) No exercise yesterday. The depression demon was knocking at the door so I did self-care things like watching Kimmy Schmidt and knitting all day. It was all the energy I could muster. Goal Two: Red 4,000 steps minimum on work days 2,748 only. Goal Three: Blue 60oz of water a day I failsauced here big time because my normal bottle was in the kitchen all day. It's bright orange so I leave it out cause seeing it makes me want to drink from it. Oops. I'ts here with me at work today... Goal Four: Multivitamin Net 1500 calories a day. This I didn't honestly track well. I want to say I was over, but I don't feel like I ate much. Either way, under calories are just as suxxors.
  13. I’ve been noticing a trend in myself -- the small changes are harder than the big changes. I can go for lunchtime walks. I can make myself workout or run. It’s the little things that keep getting in my way… so this challenge will be all about treating the symptoms of a passively healthy lifestyle. Getting proper hydration. Getting a minimum amount of steps in. Staying in a net range of calories. The things that should be mindless at this point. Main Goal: Build better simple habits to improve my overall fit life to maintain or decrease my weight or measurements as a sign of personal improvement. Goal One: Yellow Exercise 4x per week (bonus point for 5) 4 points per week; 20 points available Goal Two: Red 4,000 steps minimum on work days 5 points per week; 25 points available Goal Three: Blue 60oz of water a day 7 points per week; 35 points available Goal Four: Multivitamin Net 1500 calories a day. 7 points per week; 35 points available Let's do this!

  14. Really wasn't counting on this based on how slackery I've felt... but...
